In 1960 it changed the way movies were publicised, reshaped the expectations of audiences and established a new genre. From the iconic opening recently celebrated in the Fargo TV series, to the mesmerising musical score from Bernard Herrmann, the hectic montage synonymous with the shower sequence and other bravura set pieces, Psycho remains an unnerving and breathtaking example of Hollywood cinema. The slasher film was born. A simple premise of a bored secretary (Janet Leigh) who hits the road with a cache of stolen money is flipped on its head when she checks into the wrong roadside motel run by Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins). Psycho is “still terrifying after all these years”, notes Leonard Maltin’s Classic Movie Guide.
